was way back on the road this little girl died on.

This is one of those stories that one doesn’t even want to read; you get the particulars in the first paragraph, and you drop the rest. It’s both too horrible and too banal to comment on.

But Ladd Ehlinger does a damn good job of it:

Regardless of what pop-culture may want you to believe, human beings are not indestructible, and some things are irreversible. This is why Disney and other peddlers of crap children’s tales do such a disservice to mankind. The Grimms had it right: the world is awful and dark, and even the innocent are destroyed in horrible ways for ridiculous reasons.

Weigh your course of actions heavily.

For we are all fragile, and our time is short.
